Meridian–Kessler is home to many large and small religious institutions representing a diverse spectrum of faiths and philosophies. The number of institutions located in Meridian–Kessler, along with the density of our neighborhood, allow for many families and individuals to be able to walk to their place of worship.
Religious institutions— and an active inter-faith community— in MK play a role in connecting people, neighbors and good works.
In the book “The New Parish: How Neighborhood Churches Are Transforming Mission, Discipleship and Community” authors Paul Sparks, Tim Soerens and Dwight J. Friesen explore how powerful faith “can be when it takes root in the context of a place, at the intersection of geography, demography, economy and culture.”
As an urban residential and commercial community, Meridian—Kessler is a natural place for people to integrate all aspects of what it means to live a rich fulfilling life.
